The Bureau of Meteorology has issued a number of severe weather warnings across much of the state.

Take a look:


The Department of Fire and Emergency Services advises that people should: 

  • If outside find safe shelter away from trees, power lines, storm water drains and streams. 
  • Close your curtains and blinds, and stay inside away from windows. 
  • Unplug electrical appliances and do not use land line telephones if there is lightning. 
  • If boating, swimming or surfing leave the water. 
  • Be alert and watch for hazards on the road such as fallen power lines and loose debris. 
  • Keep away from flooded drains, rivers, streams and waterways. 
  • Be careful of fallen trees, damaged buildings and debris. 
  • Be careful of fallen power lines. They are dangerous and should always be treated as live. 
  • Assess your home, car and property for damage. 
  • If damage has occurred take photos and contact your insurance company to organise permanent repairs. 
  • If your home or property has significant damage, like a badly damaged roof or flooding, call the SES on 132 500. ​
